EBSCO eBooks: Troubleshooting

Save, Print, Email Pages

Can I print or save EBSCO eBook pages as a PDF?

If enabled by your administrator, up to 100 pages of an EBSCO eBook can be saved or emailed as a PDF file (per user) from within the eBook viewer to be printed at a later time.

Notes:

  • The number of pages may vary depending on individual publisher-specified limits.
  • The option to save eBook pages may be disabled by your administrator.
  • If you have reached your printing limit, the option to print or save eBook pages will be temporarily unavailable.
